Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://
Pull block fixes from Jens Axboe: "A smaller collection of fixes for the block core that would be nice to have in -rc2. This pull request contains: - Fixes for races in the wait/wakeup logic used in blk-mq from Alexander. No issues have been observed, but it is definitely a bit flakey currently. Alternatively, we may drop the cyclic wakeups going forward, but that needs more testing. - Some cleanups from Christoph. - Fix for an oops in null_blk if queue_mode=1 and softirq completions are used. From me. - A fix for a regression caused by the chunk size setting. It inadvertently used max_hw_sectors instead of max_sectors, which is incorrect, and causes hangs on btrfs multi-disk setups (where hw sectors apparently isn't set). From me. - Removal of WQ_POWER_EFFICIENT in the kblockd creation. This was a recent addition as well, but it actually breaks blk-mq which relies on strict scheduling. If the workqueue power_efficient mode is turned on, this breaks blk-mq. From Matias. - null_blk module parameter description fix from Mike" * 'for-linus' of git:// blk-mq: bitmap tag: fix races in bt_get() function blk-mq: bitmap tag: fix race on blk_mq_bitmap_tags::wake_cnt blk-mq: bitmap tag: fix races on shared ::wake_index fields block: blk_max_size_offset() should check ->max_sectors null_blk: fix softirq completions for queue_mode == 1 blk-mq: merge blk_mq_drain_queue and __blk_mq_drain_queue blk-mq: properly drain stopped queues block: remove WQ_POWER_EFFICIENT from kblockd null_blk: fix name and description of 'queue_mode' module parameter block: remove elv_abort_queue and blk_abort_flushes
